1990 GMC Surburban having charging problems with. The battery drains down to the point where the truck will die. Took the battery into auto parts store, which they tested and said it was good.

91 GMC c1500 4.3l... I have an intermittent charge problem, gauge and dummy light read low, accessories start to dim... I had system tested, all ok, still replaced battery, alternator, and belt.
